Willard Bay State Park

Willard Bay State Park Review

Willard Bay State Park, about 10,000 acres in size, is actually a freshwater arm of the Great Salt Lake. Fed by canals in spring, it's effectively protected from the saltwater of the Great Salt Lake by a series of dikes. Because it's freshwater, Willard Bay is a popular fishing, boating, and bird-watching area. Facilities include a marina, campground, concession stands, and shady picnic spots. Bald and golden eagles are spotted frequently in tall trees along the park's Eagle Beach.
